Webinar: Remote Sensing Derived Environmental Indicators for Decision Making
Join us as we discuss remote sensing derived environmental indicator data sets that can enable environmental decision making. We focus on three major issue areas: ambient air pollution, coastal eutrophication and biomass burning.
Presenter: Dr. Alex deSherbinin, NASA SEDAC

Event Type: WebinarMore Information
(ROSES) pilot study to develop satellite-derived indicators in three major issue areas: ambient air pollution, coastal eutrophication, and biomass burning. The presentation will describe what makes an indicator that passes muster with policy and technical audiences and the underlying satellite data and methodologies. The presentation will also cover several of NASA's Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC) data holdings that are derived from satellite data: time series global grids of PM2.5 (particulate matter at 2.5 microns), a global urban heat island (UHI) data set, and forthcoming time series global nitrogen dioxide (NO2) grid and global fire emissions indicators.
